When I stumbled across this track by pure accident, I was mindlessly scrolling through my Twitter feed like I do every few hours to see what is happening in music, or just to see if MEEK MILL RAPS LIKE has posted anything new. Generally, there is only one or two things I click on, and about only 50% of the time do I find something I really dig.
Earlier today, Call of Duty released a trailer with a brand, spankin’ new Eminem song without any previous announcement. I did not really believe the headline when I read it for the first time because, c’mon, Eminem is over 40 and has not really done anything in the studio since Recovery.
But low and behold, “Survival”, Eminem’s newest track, was there.
Although the first few versions I heard were interlaced with annoying explosions and other various war sounds, I just found this clean track with nothing but pure Eminem.
Although he still has a somewhat grating yell situation going on throughout the song, the lyrics are fresh, the beat is energetic and his voice is strong. Although being 40 isn’t that old, it is ancient in rap years (very similar to dog years) and I am happy to see that he still has some of his original spunk.
I will for sure be blasting this until I get more. But, next time, how about you give us some more warning beforehand?
Check out “Survival” below while I continue to keep writing emotional tweets about how much I have missed Em on the radio:
